A six-layer rainbow cake covered in fluffy white buttercream is sure to garner loads of oohs and ahhs the moment you cut that first slice! Paste food colourings work best, but you can use liquid or gel colouring, too. Best part? The cakes take just 15 to 20 minutes to bake and cool quickly, since they're so thin.

This is a wonderful cake that the kids will love. It's sweet, crispy, crunchy and chewy. Popcorn is tossed with jelly tots, peanuts, melted marshmallows and butter, then allowed to set. It's the perfect cake for children's birthday parties.

These cupcakes are always a hit at kids' birthdays - the kids go crazy for them. The lime jelly combines with cream to make a heavenly filling. You can then get creative making the frogs' faces. Some great tools to use are white marshmallows and black decorating icing for the eyes.

The faces of jungle animals and family pets can be created from rolled out marzipan or sugarpaste icing. If you're not a proficient artist, use children's books, greeting cards and cartoons as inspiration and trace outlines on to greaseproof paper to use as a guide when cutting out the pieces.
